How to clean and unblock the steam wand

Share with friends

Deliver perfectly textured milk every time by regularly cleaning and unblocking the steam wand on The Oracle® Touch. To clean the steam wand, wipe it down thoroughly with a damp cloth and lower the wand to purge automatically. This prevents burnt milk from forming on the outside of the wand and should be done before and after every use. If holes on the steam wand tip become blocked, clean them using the steam tip cleaning tool. If the steam wand remains blocked, remove the tip, making sure not to unscrew anything but the metal tip itself. Then soak the tip together with the steam wand using the steam wand cleaning powder included with your machine. Next, screw the tip back onto the steam wand after rinsing it thoroughly. To use the steam wand cleaning powder, add one packet of the powder to an empty milk jug with 240 ml of hot water. Remove the steam tip and place it with the steam wand into the jug and soak for 20 minutes. Then clean, rinse, and replace the steam tip. Place the wand back into the jug and activate the steam for 10 seconds. Next, allow it to soak for 5 minutes. Finally, purge the steam wand by activating the steam a few times, and then rinse the wand and jug thoroughly. Now you can enjoy silky textured milk with a velvety mouthfeel—and even begin to create beautiful latte art!
